Knowing When To Walk Away
There will always be news of divorce in the celebrity world, but the news of Christie Brinkley filing from divorce from her fourth husband, Peter Cook, is good news. Marriage is work and if both parties are honest and have similar priorities, then it's worth saving. However, if one party is dishonest and has no problem lying and can justify cheating, then it's time to say "enough if enough". Christie must think of herself and her kids now. At some point one must give up the idea of a fairy-tale ending. There is no such thing, unless you are a character from a Mother Goose story. Both Christie and Whitney have learned that lesson the hard way. There was a saying that was born out of the womens' movement back in the 70's that goes like this: "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle". Silly yes, but on some level it's true.
